Visual effects company iGene Media has opened a new colour grading suite at its London headquarters in Chiswick Park.
The suite, which was built by systems integrator Big Pic Media, includes an Advanced DaVinci Resolve suite and offers full support for high-end 2K and 4K HDR and SDR productions.
“This new colour grading suite forms a part of our development strategy as we expand the London premises from a primarily administrative site into a fully-fledged production and post production centre,” said Phillip Covell, chief commercial officer at iGene Media London.
“We have commissioned a system which will provide the technical and operational resources needed to handle a wide range of content including commercials, shortform and longform features, plus documentaries as well as social media platforms. The iGene Media client list includes many of the Hollywood majors and large-scale online streaming providers. Our London facility is ideally placed to support customers in Europe and America, supplementing the services of our colleagues in India and Singapore.”
iGene Media’s head of operations UK, Kevin Doogan added: “Big Pic Media provided a proposal that we recognised would meet not only our requirements in terms of quality, efficiency and versatility, that we could offer our clients, but would fit in seamlessly to our existing workflows.
“Adam Welsh and his colleagues recommended a solution comprising a Blackmagic Design DaVinci Resolve plus a Sony BVM-HX310 dual-layer LCD reference monitor and Sony A95K OLED client viewing monitor. They followed up with a detailed demonstration including the Resolve Advanced Panel which confirmed that the system would meet our most demanding expectations.”
